SPIbelt Review & Giveaway!

 "It won't bounce!"






I contacted SPIbelt to see if I could do a review of one of their belts. Debbie Pagell responded to my e-mails, and she was soooo WONDERFUL to work with! Not only did she say yes to allowing me to do a review, but she had me go onto their website and choose which belt I wanted. Down to the last detail of color! 

I chose the Water Resistant Energy belt in turquoise. 


After running a half marathon in the rain a week prior to ordering this belt, I felt like I wanted to have a water resistant belt to try out!








Here is SPIbelts description of this belt: 
Light Weight and lean, yet protective. Using our same sweat proof material as our specialty armband, this belt makes a great companion for you heavy sweat types, or those who like to play hard!





The loops for the energy gels. This was important to me. I currently have a belt that did not have the loops on the outside for the gels, and I felt like having the gels and everything else in the pocket was just too bulky! Problem alleviated!





You can barely see the belt!





Close up of the gels in the loops.





Nice and small





I typically turn the belt so that the pocket is in the back, and then my shirt will cover it. You don't even feel it on you!





Stretching it out...even a larger person can wear one!





I LOVED this SPIbelt! I'm definitely planning to wear it again! I actually took the belt and ran it under water, and it did it's job! No water got into the inside of the pocket! Like I mentioned, I typically turn my belt around so that the pocket is in the back. Having the gel loops on the side made it so much easier for me not only to grab while I was running, but also to access the other items in the pocket. 

I wear the belt pretty low on my hips. I don't like it on my waist. Other belts that I've tried out have somehow made their way back up to my waist...but the SPIbelt stayed put! It didn't move! Stayed on my hips the entire time.

Thank you SPIbelt for being soooo awesome!

Now, onto some fun! YOU can have your very own SPIbelt! The people at SPIbelt are very generous and are allowing you to have the same experience that I had! You will work with Deb, to pick out the SPIbelt that is right for you!

  9. Trying this again. Very cool product. Typically I use one of those clip on things to carry my gel and it tends to slip and rub. This looks like a better solution.

  26. Following! Done one half marathon myself last year. Sprained my ankle right before we started, but I still ran all 13.1 miles... though I guess most of it couldn't be called running, really, lol. I just did a 5k last month, and looking forward to doing more this year. Would love a SPI belt to go with me! =D

    I'll post on FB as well; I've already liked you on FB :)
